heavy tackle back. if there is any wind, it's difficult to use the poles (unless you have an electric) as long as you get the tackle back on the line,a heavy one, it will get down quick.if you drift off the snag keep your line tight. if it dosn't bump the lure off nine out of ten times it will hook up to the lure or snag. you should then be able to pull it off......mick

Heavy SNAHU type, with Stainless Chain.
I find it important to use braided nylon cord, often hooks foul in cord.

The first time I used a tackle back - I broke it's cord line and lost it and the lure (dolls eye boomer). I have the heavy and the light one now - gotta go the heavy one.

Rob,
It's 270g, I'm fishing less than 5M.
Hardest way to use is from the bank, the angle can work against ya!
Hasn't failed me yet, though twice my line has broken and lure floated to the top.

so the idea behind the big D shackle is to hook the lure or bash it off?
